Inspectors turn up illegal workers

STATE officers found 1,073 people working illegally in the country during the first six months of this year.

Labour inspectors found 585 of those illegal labourers, the SITA newswire wrote. Five hundred of them were considered illegal because employers did not report their employment to the social security provider, Sociálna Poisťovňa.

Labour inspectors checked 11,381 people in the workplace. They levied 93 fines totaling Sk1.56 million (€46,400) for labour violations, according to a report on detecting and combating illegal labor and illegal employment for the first half of this year. The cabinet is expected to deal with this paper soon.

So far this year, labour inspectors focused on employers with up to 49 employees. In this group, they uncovered 148 illegal workers working with private entities and 156 people illegally employed by limited liability companies. The highest number of illegal workers was found in the trade sector.
